Forum: movies Subject: File formats for uploading movies

If I upload a movie file in one format (say MPEG-1 for VCD) what (if any) conversion is done to make that file available for download in other formats (for example Real Video streaming)? Also, what are the preferred and acceptable formats for uploading? e.g., is DVD-quality mpeg2 the best? Would "realOne player, 256kbps" (.rm file) format work?

The reason I ask is that my source material has been loaded into Adobe Premiere from a MiniDV tape. I can export into many different formats before uploading to the archive. This must be covered somewhere, but I couldn't find it in the FAQ's or forum.

The best would be to upload it in MPEG2 since that is the highest quality of the formats you mentioned. From there we can convert to MPEG1 and streaming MPEG4. You can also upload other formats (just put all the files in one directory when you upload).
